We welcome Stratus Admissions Counseling on GMAT Club!




Stratus Admissions Counseling is a full service admissions counseling firm distinguished by its team based, multi-step process ensuring each application is crafted for optimum impact. Our MBA counseling team has a representative from virtually every top 20 MBA program, enabling us to provide school-specific guidance.

Since 2006, Stratus has helped thousands of students from over three dozen countries stand out amongst other qualified applicants from around the globe and gain admission into the top MBA, business and law programs.

8 Steps in the Stratus Admissions Counseling Process


In order to maximize your chance of being accepted by your dream MBA program, our talented and experienced team of MBA admissions counselors will guide you through every step of the process.

1. Introspection and Strategy Building
Your Primary Counselor will guide you through our proprietary brainstorming and introspection process to identify areas of strength from all aspects of your life: academic, professional and personal. This process includes helping you articulate your goals and create a Personal MBA Strategy to achieve them. A Senior Strategist meets with you and your Primary Counselor to review your plan and delivers feedback from a second, extremely qualified, perspective. We are planning a road map that will affect the next five years of your life and well beyond. It is important for you to consider your trajectory from multiple vantage points in order to most effectively position yourself for your desired outcomes.

2. School Selection
Your Primary Counselor leverages our MBA Admissions Counseling team’s insight and expertise to help you identify programs that are aligned with your goals, values and test scores. If interested, we can introduce our school selection survey as a resource to help get your thoughts flowing. We encourage candidates to apply to a mix of stretch, target and safety schools.

3. Essay Outlining and Editing
Your Primary Counselor coaches you through essay outlines to nail down the structure for a compelling narrative for each program. We ensure that each story resonates fully with who you are as a candidate (from your Personal MBA Strategy), and how your profile connects with each MBA program’s own unique culture. Your Senior Strategist will again join the discussion to provide detailed feedback on your outlines before you proceed with your first drafts. Stratus will also ensure that your outlines resonate with the culture of the school, via insights that our team shares. You will work with your Primary Counselor to edit each essay to hone its content, ensuring that you answer the prompt directly and completely.

4. Resume and Application Support
We provide example resumes and work with you to create an MBA-ready document that aligns with your strategy. Your Primary Counselor will assist with crafting any short answer responses to ensure that we’ve left no stone unturned in communicating why you are a perfect fit for each program.

5. Recommender Guidance
Your Primary Counselor will help you to identify the best individuals to support your applications through recommendations. We will work with you to provide each recommender with the appropriate information about your school selection and strategy to ensure the strongest recommendations possible. In the event that your current supervisor is not writing a recommendation, we will help with crafting an optional essay to explain your recommender selection.

6. School Specific Reviews and Proofreading
To complement the thorough outlining and drafting guidance your Primary Counselor provides, each set of essays is reviewed by a School Specific Reader who provides both strategic and stylistic feedback as they relate to tone, as well as the school’s culture and values. A qualified proofreader then reads the finalized drafts to catch any typographical or grammatical errors to ensure that the essays are ready for submission.

7. Interview Preparation
We coach you through the MBA interview process by sharing our insider knowledge, providing you with school specific interview tips, sharing sample questions with guidance on how to craft your responses, and providing mock interviews and feedback.

8. Post-Decision Support
When admissions decisions are in, we guide you in deciding which program you should attend based on all of the factors that will affect your future: occupational, financial, cultural, geographical and any other areas that are important to you. Your Primary Counselor will also assist you with scholarship offer negotiations. In the event you are waitlisted, your Primary Counselor will help you develop and implement your waitlist strategy.

I am a 36 year old Indian male. Could give me a general profile evaluation and then we can go into details and I can hire your services. GMAT - 700+

My work profile is below:
Work Experience (WE): 120 months (all in USA for Intel, Qualcomm, Microsoft and Synopsys, a chip-software-design-firm)
I started with Intel, then switched to 2 startups one after another which were bought out by Synopsys (SNPS), then worked for Qualcomm, Iphone chip maker, then Xbox 360 chip.
2 years ago, started my own healthcare services venture and today run my own venture and lead 40+ staff.

Industry: Technology, then last 2 years in HealthCare
Function: hardware chip design and marketing- product differentiation, sales experience; single handedly developed software used in my health care venture

Undergraduate Degree: GPA: 3.8/4.0 B.S. (Electronic) from VJTI (A top 10 school in India - in the same league as IITs or 1 notch below IITs) - The degree was a four year course.
Graduate Degree - Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering - GPA: 3.8/4.0

Despite extenuating childhood and teenage circumstances due to family-health, constantly worked and still work everyday to improve myself and emerge pretty successful with academics and later in work sphere various roles.

Community Service: My extremely difficult childhood familial circumstances (provide details on phone) and tough-time getting jobs after masters in USA just after Sept 11th 2001 made my existing strength of seeing from other person's point-of-view=empathy MORE stronger.
Since 2005, I personally helped 100+ students get $100k jobs - can provide names/emails to admission committee. chintanpurohit dot blogspot dot com

My plans after MBA, in the order of preference, are to start another venture of my own and/or pursue academia - economist after few years.

That was my detailed profile overview. Coming to the questions:
1) Considering my profile and my GMAT score, what are the chances of getting into chicago-booth, harvard, wharton, tuck, kellogg ?
2) I can retake GMAT; get higher 750+ score. I have had extremely difficult childhood and have motivations for evangelizing disease awareness and then establish rehab and treatment options in emerging economies?

Hi,

I've just given my GMAT and got a score of 670(47Q/35V, IR 7).
A bit more about myself:
I'm an Indian male, age 24 years. I have lived outside India for the major part of my life (in the middle east).
I have a bachelors degree in Electrical and Electronics form NIT Warangal ( Rank 8 college in India ) with a CGPA of 6.3/10, graduated in 2013.After which I worked at Bank of America as a Tech associate in India for 18 months. Here I was the offshore point of contact for an agile project. Worked in the role of Business Analyst in gathering business requirements and developing test cases working extensively with the developers and business partners. Got a silver award for my work in this project.

I then started a company with my friend called Urbserv which is a online/mobile app that allows you to book a handyman around the clock at your convenience. We launched in March and have received around 1000 orders till now.While working on the startup our aim was to create an app for cooks and cleaners on the go and improve their living conditions by the profits we generated from this but to change the idea because of security laws that govern this kind of work and the investors werent interested because of this.

I then moved to Riyadh,Saudi Arabia after working for a few months in the startup and started working as an Assistant Manager in a mid sized Printing and Packaging Firm(generates business of around 5 million SAR monthly ) to improve my leadership skills and to learn all aspects of running a company.Here I supervise the overall working of the company focusing mainly on operations and sales and have about 80 people reporting to me. Over the course of 6 months that i have worked here the company has improved its profit margin from 14-18%. We have used the extra money to improve the living conditions of our labour employees and in educating them. In the past 3 months we have focused on using a part of our profits in helping the under privileged by organizing volunteering activities.

During the process I have learnt that an MBA would have been very helpful.I would like to start a Social enterprise after my MBA, which aims on creating revenue generating businesses marketed with a social theme and the profits generated from these business will be used for building homes and providing food for the underprivileged in the country .In 10 years time I would like this Enterprise to improve the living conditions of the people living below the poverty line by building homes, proving food,education and providing proper healthcare.

To further my career at this point in time I would like to apply for an MBA program. Given my profile it would be very helpful if you could advice me to which colleges I can apply to. With colleges considered, ambitious, moderate and safe.

Thanks
Arjun

Hi,

Would really appreciate your thoughts on my odds at Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, MIT, Haas, Ross, and UT Austin McCombs (applying Round 2)

- EDIT: left my job in Oct 2015 - I was told by someone else that in such a situation, it's not worth applying to any schools with a <15% admittance rate - would you agree?

- 29-year-old Indian-American male
- TBD GMAT (taking it in 2 weeks) - assuming I will get > 700
- 3.79 GPA from H/Y/P, double major in Economics and Political Science

- Worked for 6 years in Big 4 (PwC/Deloitte) strategy consulting group, focused mainly on healthcare innovation; 2 of those years were spent in a selective (10% admittance) internal digital health incubator as a product manager for health and wellness solutions
- Promoted to Senior Associate (entry level MBA position, frankly not uncommon at my firm)

Extracurriculars:
- Co-founded and chaired committee to train employees in developing habits that maximize productivity, well-being, and help them work in alignment with their values
- Selected for 2 years in a row to mentor junior consultants
- Outside my firm, lead / facilitate NYC chapter of national organization that brings in experts on behavior change to help people develop sustained habits

Goal: work in a product or strategy role at an innovative organization aimed at making people healthier or happier (health tech company or innovative healthcare provider system). (I'm also very interested in cleantech and sustainability, but have comparatively less experience in that, so won't be part of my story)

Thanks very much!

Target Schools :With the 720 GMAT- your "targets" are going to be Mendoza and Tepper. Stretches will be Tuck and Ross and Darden and Yale. Remember that whatever the "avg" GMAT score is- for a candidate from India just go ahead and throw 20-30 more points on there to be "avg" for that school as most likely the highest GMAT scores are coming from India and you are being compared to your pool of applicants. That's why while a 720 is a great score overall, to be on the safe side from India it would help more to be a 740 to make sure you make all the screens in a school. What happens is that there will be far fewer applicants with those higher scores and the schools will look to fill their class from that group first- and if they can- and they often can-- the people in the 700-720 range are fighting for just a few seats and it is harder to break through the clutter at that point. Other schools I'd look at for you right now: Emory, McCombs, Cornell as your current GMAT may go farther there.... Best wishes to you and if you would like to learn more how we can help you be one of the people who has the compelling story that breaks through the noise... seek us out for a free consult... https://stratusprep.com/admissions/busi ... onsulting/
